Narcissistic Personality Disorder is an inflated sense of self-importance and issues feeling empathy for others and a need for constant praise and attention. These features make interpersonal relationships extremely difficult for people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which can have a detrimental effect in all areas of life.
Often, people with NPD are sensitive to criticism and underneath their grandiose exterior is a great deal of self-consciousness.
Available Treatment Options
Therapist interventions for people with NPD include attempting to get the person to be aware of the consequences of their behaviors, processing emotions related to the hurt they may have caused, and developing strategies to engage in healthy behavior patterns in relationships.
